Practical Advice About Bus, Train, And Subway Accidents
You may be one of the millions of New Yorkers who daily rely on public transportation. Unfortunately, you may also be one of the many New Yorkers who has suffered an injury on subway trains, in subway stations, on commuter trains, and on buses operated by municipalities and public authorities such as the NYCTA, MTA, MABSTOA, LIRR, and AMTRAK.
If this describes you, we can help. The experienced personal injury lawyers at Arye, Lustig & Sassower, P.C., based in Manhattan, have extensive experience with injury cases.
Helping Victims Of Mass Transit Accidents Since 1965
Since 1965, we have helped clients seriously injured in mass transit accidents. Personal injury accident cases involving public transportation can be complicated because the responsible party is a city, county, or state government. Each of these governmental jurisdictions has its own set of rules and laws.
It takes an experienced attorney not only to understand those laws and rules but, most importantly, to understand how they apply to your particular case so that you can receive the maximum compensation allowed by law.
Personally injured in a mass transit accident? We can help. Call 212-732-4992 or 800-574-4LAW. Free consultation.
Why Personal Injury Cases Against The Government Are So Different
Our experience shows that these cases have much shorter deadlines than most motor vehicle accident cases or other transportation cases. In many situations, a notice of claim must be filed within 90 days of any accident, or you will lose your right to file a lawsuit. Any failure to meet the procedural requirements of a municipal liability claim can bar you forever from bringing a claim.
Successfully Achieving Compensation For Our Clients
Our attorneys have successfully compensated people injured in subway, train, and bus accidents. Many of these injuries were caused by collisions, sudden stops, closed doors, and unsafe subway platforms and stairs conditions.
